With the costs .of war piling • higher, you will want to know, of qpurse, : hpw : you, yourself;; will' be rfffecteri. Well, it is estimated that the.national debt will :• be .over 292 billion dollars by June, 1946 And on the basis of 138 million Americans, the per capita share in national debt will be over S2000 lor every man, woman and child for fhe nation. The deficit fiscal year alone, from July i 1945, to June 30. 13113, is expected to amount to $293 for every American. , Peacetime Itciliiclioii Seen The President's message dealt not only with the war .program but looked into plans for a peace time economy as well! In a preview .of actual post war demobilization plans, his message describes a post war cut of annual expenditures to 50 billion dollars in the demobilization period. The expenditures will'keep on the down swing until they have reached a 25 billion dollar mark, and" then will level off." And the post war lax program offers the nation a brieht prospect, indeed. The President says that in order to keep the level of employment up to requirements for n prosperous nation, there must be a tremendous increase in peace lime consumer demands. And the only way lhat consumers will spend their money is if their tax burdens are lightened. However, the President warns that'all [his is far in the future, that we should be making a tragic mistake if we under 'estimate the task directly before us. W&uld Continue I.cml-I.p.isc . To touch briefly on oilier phases of the President's message, Mr. Roosevelt urged that we continue lend lease to the full extent necessary to win the war. However, he r.dded that the program will be liquidated at the end of:the war unless our help is needed:; to. relieve .distress In llberated;iar«as. War veterans will get a'' ; sizeable chunk of next year's expenditures The government probably will pay out well over nine billion dollars to war veterans along with interest on the debt and tax refunds. The President also' urges early consideration of the extension of Social Security and a far reaching agricultural program to do away with unmanageable surpluses. He says surpluses Indicate that we arc producing too much of the wrong things. As for clamp-downs on wages and prices, the President says we're holding the line against inflation, and we must keep on with rationing and price controls as long as certain materials are scarce. President Roosevelt held another session today—a conKrcnce with Bank Declares Annual Dividend Lynch Gives Report Of Prosperous Year As Directors Meet Stockholders of Farmers Bank and Trust Company, In their annual meeting today, declared the usual 10 per cent dividend, reeiect- ed directors and heard a report of the year's business which disclosed deposits totaling $8,557,675.41.

Industry must be urged to o\ dices and work in pic in thrift,-efficiency, sound agcment, and good will. F prise must be preserved." the war and the peace. "However, certainly : bjectivc must be to pii of State in order. Fo years, we have been cc: . well enough alone; and, as a sequence, we are faced with : gcrous trend in government. Outlines Principles -. zen and as your governor, I slmll use every means at my command to preserve this basic principle of Democracy." Modern government—local, state, national—is too complex and hns too many overlapping functions, he satd. "We can bring about an Immediate improvement in this situation by simplifying in every known way the administration of our slnlc governmental affairs; by reluming to local government those functions which pertain to local conditions; by providing state governmental services in matters affecting the state as a whole; and by leaving to the federal government those problems lhat arc national In scope. ' "If we have any desire or hope for lessening the cost and increasing the eiliciency of government, we must discontinue the practice of pyramiding one governmental agency upon another wilitau; regard to the necessity for and the cost of such additional undertakings. To me the problem we face as a state is not different from that we face as individuals. II is not a mailer of wJial we want, it is a matter of what we are willing to pay /or nnd can af- lord to pay for. "We cannot demand of and receive from stale government, bone- fils and services without paying the bill in one way or another." At this point he offered his immediate recommendations ns regards departmental consolidation, all of which already had been handed to the pre-scssion joint Budget Committee. "These recommendations," Governor Laney said in his forthright address, "point the way, and with the voluntary aid of certain public-' spirited citizens, I shall continue my studies, anticipating additional recommendations to the General Assembly." Regarding schools, he said, "I believe lhat every boy and girl in Arkansas should have every educational opi>orUm!ty enjoyed by children of other states, but added: "I am cognizant of the very jig- jmes ifivf )day r fntintt fui iun noitty rnment i. 9.— Dcchir- as 11 mandate ring economy to Ihe man- govcrnniont liccanie gov- ay rwd gave ilU (Urcct his lowering the : efficiency oC ions and ser- llcttoii.of Ills i which the left no doubt ilnlstrator of oy lie would 1 (2) us .the >!o, Uic 'head t of service, Arkansas in site's bct'tei 1 - roarcsstve. : mmbndiillons : unheralded hey were' put o stop In lax en— thc'nils- d exemption' lis, of course, ! notion. i -versed usually short Mnbers of the Hie IIou'so v stateinenl: in our lives -I should like ed." ch the slato listered will on Iho prog'i islry, and 1ft- vernor."

Jnp- nncsc legend has 'it that- some 100 years ago, when Japan was threatened by an invasion of the Asiatic warlord Kublal Khan, the country was saved by divine aid In the form of a fierce gale which helped the Japanese rout the- Mongol Invaders. The gale supposedly was the dl- vlnc answer to the prayers of Hie Japanese nation, led by the retired emperor. Thus It was called Ihc "kamikaze" or "divine wind." Drawing the parallel, the Kamikaze lllers presumably are supposed to be the modern savior of .Inpan. Before the Invasion of tlie Philippines, there were a number of'iso- lated cases cited by Tokyo of Jap filers blasting themselves against targets and dying for their homeland and their emperor. Bul II was not until October 25lh, five days nfter the Invasion of Lcyte, that Tokyo announced the formation of the Kamikaze corps as tin organization of suicides, eligible for promotion after death. According to the Jap broadcasts, the navy was the first to organize such units, but the army followed up rapidly. And now, as the Japs tell It, there nre 35 Kamikaze units, made up of four or five fliers each. The sc-cnilc-d Shlntcu unit, Incidentally, is the outfit which Tokyo says Is defending Japan from the B-29 Superfortresses. However, judging froni the damage scored, the Shlnten unit Is falling down on iiiflcant fact that we nre devoting a larger share of our stale tax dollar to education than are most of the slates in the nation including wealthier ones." On this statement he cited figures tnxen from the Bureau of the Census which showed a larger percentage of Arknnsas's Slrttc lax dollar going to education than of the Stale lax dollar In New York, Illlnols/Maryland, Ohio, Connecticut and Washington, "More and more money obviously sn't the only solulion to this problem," 1«!
